XMMS and web browsing-- but not together


I can't listen to CDs via XMMS and browse the web at the same time. Basically, whenever I have a CD in either drive, my web browsers can't connect or download any pages. Take the CD out, I'm fine. I can listen to music I ripped onto my hard drive and browse, just no CD.

I have played with the buffers and cache in both my browser and XMMS. No luck.

It shouldn't be a hardware problem: ASUS p4p800 mobo (built in sound card) P4 2.4 GHZ, CD RW, DVD, 512 MB Crucial Memory (3200 DDR), 480 Thermaltake PSU, 2 X 120 GB Harddrives Radeon 9600 Pro.

This is a recent thing... as I just updated to SuSE 9 yesterday.

Any clues? Is that weird or what?

What were you using before SuSE 9, and what kind of modem are you using?

My first reaction was a design flaw in the motherboard (CD audio connection conflicts with winmodem), but I don't really know enough about it. Maybe a driver confilct with the same problem - or does that only happen on Winbloze?

Get your terms right. It's either PC3200 or DDR400. You can't mix and match.

I'm using a Creative Modem blaster external modem... Not a winmodem. Was using 8.2 before 9.

Whoops on the memory.

Got it to work... fiddled with settings, and discovered, that in my infinite wisdom, I had something set on CD ROM rather than the mixer... It is working now....

Thanks...

I use ALSA - and have just successfully recompiled the drivers on two machines and tested one without rebooting but the other I'm using for the net so I won't yet - and wvdial. I'm very happy with both of them, and have never had any trouble with them (except when I thought it would be a good idea to install yiff, nas, rsound, esound, oss, alsa, arts and a few other servers at the same time, all of them independent - not like arts going through ALSA. I have learnt from my errors, and am now a pious ALSA user. No more soundserver conflicts!).

Glad to see that you've fixed it - and in just under an hour (since your first post)! I've never heard of a CD being used as a mixer though...
